This is the Official Star Trek PADD (Personal Access Display Device) App by CBS Interactive. It’s definitely designed for the fans. It’s inspired by the PADD from the show. We’d be lying if we said we knew much about Star Trek, but we know a few people who would be willing to drop the $4.99 on this App immediately.
Here are the features according to the Apps page on the App Store:
Features of the Star TrekTM PADD app include:
-Browse or search through official database of Star Trek television series information, including aliens, ships, places, technologies, and episode guide
-Rich, immersive LCARS graphical interface, introduced in Star Trek: The Next GenerationTM television series
-Authentic computer sound effects and voice
-Jump to related information through cross-links to other content
-Read the latest news from the Star TrekTM Facebook page and Star Trek Twitter feed
-Enjoy two self-running diagnostic modes with an overview schematic of the U.S.S. EnterpriseTM NCC-1701-D
They also note that they will be updating the database as more information becomes available. Nice. Sounds like a good way to accompany your Netflix streaming of Star Trek, if ya don’t mind the new pricing plans.
